U-M Injury Prevention Center UROP Projects 2017-2018

The University of Michigan Injury Prevention Center would like to thank all of the wonderful U-M Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) students that worked with our Center this past school year (2017-18). As UROP Research Mentors, our Center members have had the opportunity to collaborate with students, gaining valuable insight on projects while providing students with unique learning experiences and aiding in the development of their research skills. 

The U-M IPC Center worked with eight students on various injury prevention studies and projects. At the end of the winter semester, the students were able to summarize their projects in the form of a poster and present at the annual UROP Spring Research Symposium. We are proud to post the pictures of our students with their posters at this year's Symposium. 

Thank you to everyone involved in the projects: the students, their Supervisors and the Research Mentors. The Center gained invaluable contributions from these students.
